Engine swap from 97 dodge to 01 dodge?

Asked by Nov 01, 2019 at 12:34 AM about the Dodge RAM 1500

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

My buddy has a 2001 dodge ram 4x4 vin #
1B7HF13Z21J267623. It has a blown 5.9
SMPI,Eng. Code EML. He also has a 97
dodge 1500 2wd
vin # 1B7HC16Z1VS117328 with a 5.9 MPI
Eng. Code EML, and both have transmission
type: 4,5 4.o min. 5.0 max automatic
w/overdrive. CAN THE 97 motor be installed
into the 2001, and if it can, what all needs to
be swapped out or replaced to make it
work? The intake? Computer? Any wiring?
As you can probably tell, we are not
seasoned mechanics or anything and can
use any help or information offered, and
really appreciate everyone on here who
helps out whenever I use this forum. Happy
holidays ahead of time to all of you!
